Our experience exceeded expectations! It was a great place to escape to with our team, kick back, enjoy the fires and engage with each other.
Awesome accommodations, meals were excellent, and staff was outstanding. A great place to get away for a while!
Loved it! Everything was perfect. A huge kudos to the chefs, every meal was amazing & the girls in the dining area are awesome, especially Makenzie!
To be honest, we weren’t sold on using this place as a conference center until we got there. Then, It was all glowing reviews. The food was OUTSTANDING! The staff was so sweet (Thank you Julie & Stephanie!) Every need or problem was taken care of for us, with so much grace & ease. Before we left, we were already planning next year. Thank you again for a great conference!
You have a very beautiful facility, with the best staff. Everyone was friendly, polite and always courteous. The kitchen/wait staff was tremendous!!! Mackenzie was amazing. Loved the interaction by everyone.
Excellent accommodations and fine meals! Staff is very friendly and professional. I was truly impressed with the whole experience.

We came for a business meeting, had overnight accommodations, and went on an upland hunt the following morning. Great space to host a meeting. The Original Lodge was a great place for us all to stay. I was very impressed with the meals that were served. I was also extremely impressed to have a prayer before meals. The upland bird hunt was a lot of fun. Lots of birds, our guide was great, the dogs worked perfect and we had a lot of shooting! Feb 15-16, 2022
Such a great experience. Would love to bring my family back. The food FABULOUS! Thank you! -Laura Deornellas

I helped facilitate strategic planning for a local electric cooperative. This was an excellent venue for planning in a private yet beautiful facility. Meeting room was excellent along with whiteboards, video projection, wall space, etc. The food was excellent home cooking.

I would highly recommend Heartland Lodge. Your service and friendly staff is always above and beyond most other places. The meals were unmatched - worth the stay alone. The decor is amazing. Every detail is well thought out.

Exceptional in all areas. The staff were both professional and personable. The meals were simply over the top (How do I go back home?). A callout to Kathleen for her service to our group.
Wonderful stay! Beautiful grounds! Delicious meals! Loved the cabin! Sweet and Friendly Staff.
Everything was very nice! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The servers were very nice and the food was nothing short of awesome. The atmosphere feels like I am being welcomed into your home and we are truly your guests.

Really enjoyed the personal touch you offer. Warm and hospitable environment. Family style meal worked very well for our group.
This place was beautiful--well kept, private, and such a nice getaway for a work conference. The staff was the best and the food was beyond delicious. What a neat getaway place. The decor was so well done. My room was perfectly decorated, clean, and comfortable. Can not say enough about the fresh, delicious, home cooked meals we enjoyed. Was the best chicken pot pie I ever had. Every meal was better than the next.

It was nothing but perfect. The food was hands down the best. Will return when appropriate.

Beautiful, super clean accommodations, my room was fabulous as was the entire lodge. The staff was the friendliest I've ever experienced. The lady at check-in/front office and everyone at the dining hall. The food was so good! This visit exceeded all of my expectations! Would love to come back with family!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay during our staff retreat! So much so that I would love to return on a personal trip. I also appreciated the hayrack ride to see the Mississippi Valley.
